Dear Customer,

 

The first screen in BIOS has a Language setting below the date and time fields. select English language. 

Japanese alphabets for "English language" ==> 英語

 

See this POST: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Operating-Systems-and-Recovery/How-to-change-Japanese-bios-to-E...

what the gbl84 said earlier didnt work for me, because the bios i had doesnt have any language option to go to with under date/time

 

i had to press f8 in the *main bios window* for the language options

*i use f10 to go in main bios,

 

setting the language using f8 in main bios did the trick for me, as it may do for you.
